The Winners of the Dog Show Competitions with RUFF organizers and Boston Police Community Relations

R.U.F.F. (Responsible Urbanites for Fido) hosted a fun dog show fundraiser on Saturday afternoon at the North End Dog Park. The group is working with city officials to make the successful pilot at the Gassy Flights into an official dog park opening in Spring 2016.

Dozens of dogs participated in numerous categories of competition including obedience, fancy dress, oldest, best trick and naughtiest. There was a dog portrait table and plenty of treats and support for both dogs and humans. Sponsors included Crate Escape, The Dogfather, Orchard, Pilgrim Parking, Starbucks Coffee, Unleashed, DePasquale Ventures, BarkBox, PolkaDogBakery, V. Cirace & Son and TD Bank. See http://ruffboston.org to donate toward the new dog park.
